Ah, here it is, the one and only time I saw the Grateful Dead live. It was great, and I really appreciated the spirit of the crowd. People dancing with strangers, feeling relaxed and laid back. I sort of became a fan at that point, though not an avid follower. I 'got' the Dead, but didn't feel driven to explore their music (because, honestly, it's all pretty much the same). Perhaps if I started in '72, and took the right drugs, I'd be a bigger fan. Still, a very memorable experience!

The reviews below are yet more evidence, to me, that Deadheads are listening to something other than the music. This is the best show, musically, that the band did all month! The sound quality of the recording may be annoying (it is), and you may have had a better time down in Veneta, but neither of those things matter if you're listening to the actual music, which is why the Dead were there: they played music!

Anyway, everybody is playing awesomely on this one. Check it out!

Not much to say about this show. The sound was better than I expected for an AUD, and the show itself was not a clunker. However, nothing really stood out or pumped me up in this show.

It made pleasant background music as I did some household cleaning, but I think if I was listening to this show simply for the pleasure of listening to a show, I would have been disappointed. I'm giving this one two stars only to balance out the 4-star rating here...it's really a 2.5 star show.

Setlist is rather dull, perhaps due to Mr. Kesey keeping them up late the night before, but this is actually a pretty tight performance, and an excellent FOB audience. Love those Nak 300s.

Especialy compared to the previous excellent Veneta, Ore. show this was pretty mundane, short and generic. 3 at best.
